How to make your own body wash using only 4 ingredients!

Posted on

The best part of making your own cleaners and personal items is that you know exactly what ingredients are in them.

I've tried a few recipes out for body wash, this one was my favourite because it was really easy and I feel like it has helped my skin not dry out as much as it would usually during winter.

What I loved about this too was that the castile soap and vitamin E have lasted me ages so whenever i've needed to make another batch of body wash, i've always had the ingredients on hand. The only ingredient I needed to make sure I was on top of was the coconut milk!

You will need

1/2 cup coconut milk (Just a can from the supermarket! Then freeze in portions whatever you don't use)

3/4 cup castile soap

2 tsp vitamin E oil

10 drops of essential oil

An empty pump bottle


Add all of the ingredients into the pump bottle, give it a little shake, and that's it!


This makes a bit over 300ml of body wash. I usually double the recipe which lasts me about 2-3 months!

This recipe is not my own, I found it on Pinterest, you can find the original recipe here

Do you already make your own body wash? What ingredients do you like to use?
